DAY 2 • SUNDAY • SPLIT – TROGIR
Our English speaking guide will do a morning Split City tour, walking us through the world famous Diocletian’s Palace. Split is the second largest urban center in Croatia and the seat of the Split-Dalmatia County. Over 1700 years old, Split abounds with cultural and historical sights, lots of them situated within the Split’s historical nucleus which has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list ever since 1979. At 12 am we’ll sail out for Trogir, another city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Lunch will be served on board and we’ll have a swim stop en route, arriving in Trogir in the afternoon. This town – museum is literally packed with palaces, churches, monasteries, and towers, the main attraction being the Cathedral of St. Lawrence, probably the finest example of sacral architecture in Croatia. A professional English speaking guide will take us for a Trogir city tour. Afterward, you’ll have the evening on your own, free to explore or have a dinner in one of Trogir’s s cozy taverns.

DAY 3 • MONDAY • TROGIR – BOL – HVAR
In the morning we’ll sail for Bol, a place best known for its beach of Zlatni Rat (Golden Cape), which regularly hits the top lists of the most beautiful European beaches. Once we stop in Bol, you can enjoy indulging in simple pleasures such as taking a walk around this nice little Dalmatian town, perhaps having a cup of coffee or a swim, until lunch is served on board. After lunch, we shall continue cruising along the many scenic coves and bays, all the way to Hvar. Besides being the sunniest Croatian island, Hvar is also one of the country’s most attractive tourist destinations and a meeting point of international jet-setters. Upon our evening arrival at Hvar, a local English speaking guide will walk you through this unique town, introducing you to its millennia-long history, culture and a way of life, along with few island’s peculiarities, such as the traditional farming of lavender. Afterward, you’ll have an evening on your own to explore and dine in one of the numerous family-owned restaurants and taverns.

DAY 4 • TUESDAY • HVAR-BIŠEVO BLUE CAVE – VIS
We’ll cruise to the Island of Biševo and its Blue Cave, one of the most famous natural attractions in the whole of the Adriatic Sea. Blue Cave is a water-logged cave that can be approached only by boat. The sunbeams penetrating through a submarine opening in Blue Cave get reflected from its white bottom floor, creating a stunningly magical effect of deep aquamarine and shiny silver light. However, at times high waves prevent the entrance to Blue Cave, which is something we shall not know before the morning designated for our visit. If that happens, we can provide an alternative half-day tour of Vis Island with its historical WWII RAF Airport, along with a visit to Komiža – a peculiarly beautiful town boasting the longest fishing tradition on East Adriatic and some fine taverns which serve local produce. On the other hand, if we succeed in visiting Blue Cave, we shall cruise to the Island of Vis after lunch. Being an important strategic military stronghold for a long time, Vis was spared the excessive tourist development and thus retained its unspoilt beaches, ecological agriculture, and traditional architecture.
Overnight in Vis (B,L)
DAY 5 • WEDNESDAY • VIS – KORČULA
We’ll start our day with morning departure towards the Island of Korčula. Before lunch, we shall stop for a swim in one of the pristine bays en route. Our arrival at the Island of Korčula is scheduled for the afternoon. Town of Korčula is the island’s main settlement and is known as the birthplace of Marco Polo, one of the world’s most famous explorers of all times. Our English speaking guide will take you for a tour of Korčula Town, through its narrow and cobbled streets and its rich history. You’ll have the rest of the evening free to enjoy dining at one of the local restaurants of your choice.
Overnight in Korčula Historical Town (B,L)
DAY 6 • TUESDAY • KORČULA – NATIONAL PARK MLJET – ŠIPAN ISLAND OR SLANO
Sailing out from Korčula in the morning, we’ll cruise towards Mljet National Park where we expect to come around 10 am. You’ll have just enough time to explore the park, walk around Great and Small Lake and visit the Islet of St. Mary with its Benedictine Monastery from the 12th century or take a swim in the heart of Mljet National Park. Entrance fees to National Park Mljet are included. Take care to return to the boat for lunch. In the afternoon, we’ll continue our cruise to the Island of Šipan where we’ll anchor in a picturesque peaceful fishermen’s village of Šipanska Luka. In case dock and lock schedules or weather conditions prevent us from anchoring here, we’ll cruise to Slano, located on the mainland.
In the evening we shall have Captain’s Dinner on board, along with some live music entertainment.
Overnight in Šipanska Luka or in Slano on the mainland (B,L, Captain’s Dinner with live music)
DAY 7 • FRIDAY • CRUISE TO DUBROVNIK CITY WALLS
In the morning we’ll depart for Dubrovnik, sailing by the Elaphiti Islands, until we arrive at the historical center of Dubrovnik, the world-famous city enlisted as UNESCO’s World Heritage Site.
We shall cruise along Dubrovnik City Walls and fortifications and have lunch on board, right in front of the city’s historical nucleus. Don’t miss a chance to partake in an unforgettable group photo with a breathtaking vista of Dubrovnik in the background.
We’ll do our best to spend this cruise’s last evening on anchorage in front of Dubrovnik’s Old Town. We’ll also organize timely tender transfers to Old Town and back. We hope this proves to be the high point of what could turn out to be the best cruise of your life. In case bad weather conditions prevent us from anchoring in front of Old Town we’ll anchor in Dubrovnik Gruž Harbour.
On this last day of the cruise, our own English speaking guide will show you the most interesting sights of Dubrovnik. After the city tour, you will be left on your own to explore around, visit City Walls, take a scenic cable car to the top of Mount Srđ with its stunning 360° vista or enjoy an intimate farewell dinner. Though time you’ll spend in Dubrovnik will be short, we are sure you’ll learn why this city was deservedly nicknamed Pearl of the Adriatic. Scheduled return to the boat will be organized either by tender ships or by a coach, depending on the anchorage.
